I was staying at the Premier Inn next door and had breakfast here twice, on the first day I was later and there was a noisy group of four adults and two children - I wish that I had sat further away from them, I felt sorry for the waitress who had to clear their table and the floor afterwards,...

Reasonably priced no frills dining. Staff are pleasant and attentive. Typical Beefeater really. In Cumbernauld it's a decent alternative if you need a break from Chinese or Indian fare.

We ate here twice while staying at the Premier Inn next door (dinner and then breakfast the following morning). I'm not really a fan of beefeaters and similar chain pubs as the food is very run of the mill but the reason I felt I should give 4 stars is the staff were very efficient and friendly.
